Just to confirm where things are up to with the plans for our trip to Jura on May 1st.
In discussion with the boat operator, I have opted for Pig Bay rather than Glengarisdale. This means that we miss out on having a Bothy, which may have come in useful, but there are caves, and I will take a tarp to rig up if we really need some shelter to cook/commune under. Glengarisdale was just too much of a risk in terms of safe landing and (more particularly) pick-up once landed.
In terms of numbers-
6 people signed up through ‘Emerging Scotland’ site.
3 of us from Dunoon
2 from Preston
2 others from Glasgow
Plus Terry coming out for the boat trip on either the send or the return
(And two dogs!)
Plus 3 possibles-
One bloke from Bute, who has said he wants to come.
Nick- does not think he can make it.
Should be a nice mix of people- and this time, there are 3 WOMEN as part of our gathering!
This gives us the nice problem of needing more than one boat trip. At present, I have provisionally booked an outward trip at 7AM and 8AM on the 1st. Have not been able to confirm returns yet for the Monday, but in the past these have been mid morning.
So- can you please confirm whether you are definitely coming. If you say yes, then I am afraid you are committing to paying your share of the boat costs even if you drop out!
There are also still be a few places left if you know of any others who might want to join us yet… It would be good to fill the second boat as well…
Really looking forward to the weekend!
